I skipped the section telling businesses to think twice before deciding they needed a mobile application however, as there didn’t appear to be any business people in the audience. I was interested to find that during the panel discussion it was suggested to build mobile websites instead of mobile applications, and in discussion with individuals afterwards, the theme came up again. It’s clear that a number of developers in attendance agreed with me that mobile applications are looked at too readily, instead of options such as the mobile web or SMS.
I’m going to be talking about Android for the Summer of Tech Mobile Developers Panel on the 8th of February. This is going to be my first public speaking engagement, and I’m really looking forward to it. Come and support, the discussion should be interesting and informative, and there’s pizza and beer! You need to RSVP on Lil’ Regie. All the Summer of Tech events I’ve attending have been great. Hope to see you there.
I’ll be busy preparing for the next week, a new blog post will be forthcoming sometime after the panel.
